Local structure at the nanoscale (e-PDF)

Prof. Simon Billinge , Columbia University


The study of nanocrystalline or amorphous materials can be optimally performed with Electron Pair Distribution function (e-PDF) in the TEM. This technique allows the study of materials at the local environment (nm scale) using collected (ED) patterns. We will show how e-PDF has been recently applied to study nanoparticles and amorphous materials.
